WH (Heer) EM's M36 Field Blouse


Wehrmacht (Heer) Cavalry EM's M36 Field Blouse (Feldbluse M36). The development of the M36 field blouse can be traced back to April 1933 with the introduction of the first pattern field blouses. Modifications of the M33 field blouse had evolved into the M36 Field Blouse. This is an EM's issue tunic which has been upgraded to and NCO's rank. The high quality wool/rayon blend construction field blouse has 5 front closure buttons and the recognizable four, pleated, front pockets. The field blouse is having a nicely hand-sewn early style BeVo-woven breast-eagle. The collar is having a pair of nicely machine-sewn collar-tabs. The collar-tabs are having the basic green branch colour, the different branches of service within the German army were allocated a particular identifying 'Waffenfarbe' (branch of service) color which was generally displayed on the collar tabs. An exception to this rule were the general service collar tabs (Einheitskragenspiegel) for EM/NCO personnel that did not utilize the branch of service color enabling them to be worn by personnel serving in all branches of service. Both the breast-eagle and collar-tabs have been reapplied once. Shoulder-board loops and buttons are present and the tunic is complete with a pair of slip-on shoulder-straps as intended for a 'Soldat der Kavallerie' (Cavalry). An 'Oberschütze' rank pip is nicely hand-sewn to the wearer's upper left sleeve, a nicely hand-embroidered Ordnance personnel's Trade Badge (Waffenmeister Tätigkeitsabzeichen) is hand sewn to the wearer's right lower sleeve. The interior of the field blouse is partially lined in ribbed, grey/tan cotton, there is a small bandage pocket on the lower right, the tunic is slightly shortened. The field blouse is nicely size marked (chest size 102cms) which is a large size and perfect for display. The tunic is maker marked by the company 'Kleiderfabriken G.Dürselen', the tunic is dated 1941 (H41). The two small buttons to tighten the sleeves are missing. There is some minor moth damage at the back, see photos. Overall the tunic is hardly showing any traces of usage and is in very good condition, see photos. Nice original tunic!
